Yesterday on QUILTsocial, we talked about 2 ways to use WonderFil DecoBob thread for longarm machine quilting, and I shared a bunch of simple filler designs that can be used for modern-looking quilts. Today, I have one more UFO to finish and since I loved using the WonderFil Master Quilter with DecoBob in the bobbin, I’m going to use them again for this project.
The bedrunner that I’m quilting today was made on QUILTsocial last October. I used the Northcott’s Artisan Spirit – Euphoria line of fabric, and I can’t wait to get it quilted.
Here’s a nice design that I like to use for quilts that have a floral theme. It combines a modern flower, echoes, sawtooth, and curlicue motifs to make one complex looking machine quilting design. Here’s a video showing how I stitch this lovely design.

Here’s a close up of one of the flowers that I machine quilted with the WonderFil Master Quilter thread. I really like how the design looks on the bedrunner!
Here you can see the overall design that joins the different motifs. You can see how the largest motif in the design is the flower, and that they all point in different directions as they progress along the quilt.
Wow!! That’s a lot of binding!!
Wow – now that I have all of these projects quilted, they all need to be bound. I had many of the bindings already made, so I’ve sewn them on to the projects, and now I just need to sit and stitch. I guess I better find a good movie on Netflix!
Thanks for joining me this week as I experimented with these longarm threads from WonderFil. I’ve enjoyed trying them all on my longarm machine, and I’m looking forward to using them on other future projects!
This is part 5 of 5 in this series.
